Lennie's

Shoreditch

This bright caff looks out through large windows at the broad flank of St Leonard’s church across the street. Plates of prodigiously steaming dishes are delivered

promptly from a reheat, along with a mug of strong tea, in portions designed to satisfy local brickies as much as local media bohos.

The preparation area consists of a display case for salad and clingfilmed cakes, a counter for big pots of own-made stew, curry, beef pie and lasagne, and a range for frying the breakfast eggs. The staff are obliging but admirably unfussy (cakes arrive with a teaspoon rather than a fork), and the food, although a little sludgy from the microwave, is still tasty and satisfying.

Love it...... a relaxed little place with passionately cooked food, authentic Thai from a Thai lady.. she grows her own veg and brings them along with her to advise you what you should take at your table... There is no messing with Lennie, wonderful, fun and just good cooked fresh food .. bring your own wine and you won't find a more reasonable dining experience .. get talking to her .. :)
